Amar’e Stoudemire was not the only Knicks player hitting the Fashion Week circuit. At Dom Perignon’s dinner at Villa Pacri on Thursday, Knicks forward Danilo Gallinari told us he loves Fashion Week. “I’m from Italy, and I’ve been to Fashion Week. And I just love it. I just love the ambiance, I just love this world, and it’s nice to hang out,” the 22-year-old said. Gallinari, who has been in the U.S. for two years, was sporting one accessory you don’t often see at fashion parties: a black eye. "Two days ago, I got elbowed in practice," he explained, laughing. “So everybody was telling me I should put some makeup [on it], but I don’t care,” he said. “I don’t want to put makeup on.”
